Database Search

You are in the database section of the website.

Select a record category from RECORDS above. When you have selected a category, you will see search options for that category above the record list. 

Most fields require at least three characters. When you submit your query, the search engine will return all records that contain your search term.

Note that when searching for an aircraft serial number, you must enter the full serial number without the leading "4" and without a dash in the Aircraft SN search field. For example, you would enter 42-37772 as 237772.

The Personnel name field searches both last and first names, so if you enter the search term, "Russ", the search engine will return both Russell Abel and James Russell.

You narrow the search by entering more characters into the search field. For example, "Russ" returns many hits. "Russell" returns fewer hits. The same principle applies to all queries.

The POW and KIA categories are list only and are not searchable.

Dear Mike,
 
Thanks for the info.  I printed the e-mail off and left it at work yesterday.  But, I know that Daddy Veron Terrell  can answer some of your questions.   After doing some research I found that Bert Cassles in Tx.  He and Daddy talked with each other on Sat.  It really made Daddy's day!  
 
On Ancestry.com I've been able to determine that Earnest R. Loomis died 20 Aug 2004 and buried at the Shaddy Cemetery in Grovespring,Mo.
 
James H. Wood died 13 Oct. 2005 in KY,  Everett R. Kennedy died 7 Dec. 1985 in CN,  Michael G. Hudak died 5 Aug 1993 in PA, Kurwin F Dech 
 
died 1 Nov. 1970 in a car wreck in PA ( Daddy recieved a letter from his wife when this occurred).  I hope that this helps you a little in your
 
quest for the info on our brave airmen from the 100 Bomb group.  
 
I'll keep in touch when I've got more info for you.  
 
Thanks again!  
 
LeAnn Myers
